Need steps to install on 7.6 Client on Centos 6.2 64 bit

Recommended Posts

I followed through the forum and tried to setup retrospect client 7.6 in Centos 6.2. The files get installed but I get an error that the daemon could not start. I tried deleting the install and tried to install again but the same result.

 

Is there a guide for RHEL which I can follow ? And is there any official documentation for installing and troubleshooting for RHEL.

Any help appreciated.

I have the only solution to this dilemma I run into everytime on all my Linux installs, mainly CentOS 6.x - I have tried everything but the only oslution to get this to work everytime is documented here:

 

Using rpm to uninstall and erase any prior packages:

 

# rpm -e retroclient
LSB Version:    :core-4.0-amd64:core-4.0-noarch

 

MUST install this library:

# yum install libgcc.i686      
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
Resolving Dependencies...
Complete!

 

Installing the client with rpm, install/print hash marks as package installs/verbose:

# rpm -ihv linux_client-7_7_100.rpm
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
1:retroclient ########################################### [100%]
Installing Retrospect Client...
...
Retrospect Client started successfully!

# /usr/local/dantz/client/retrocpl
Server "xxx.xxx.xxx":
    Version 7.7.100
    back up according to normal schedule
    currently on
    readonly is off
    exclude is off
    0 connections, 0 authenticated

# /sbin/chkconfig --add /etc/init.d/rcl

 

then I run a process grep:

 

#ps aux | grep retro*

root      2677  0.0  0.0 118772  9476 ?        Ssl  Jun19   0:23 /usr/local/dantz/client/retroclient -daemon

 

At some point during install, it will ask for the retrospect password, WRITE IT DOWN!

 

And don't forget the most imoprtant piece, open up this port and add this to your iptables (remember to restart iptables # service iptables restart). retroclient listens on port 497:

 

-A INPUT -p tcp -m state --state NEW -m tcp --dport 497 -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -p udp -m state --state NEW -m udp --dport 497 -j ACCEPT

 

How come this info is absolutely nowhere to be found on this site?!? Now it is.

 

Running beautifully!
